I received my 3 ruuvi tags and have Nexus 7 (2012) model with Android 5.1.1.
Powered on ruuvi, blinking green.
On Nexus, enabled: bluetooth, location, and nearby notifications. Nothing appears for nearby notifications.
Installed suggested “nRF Connect”, but it fails to find anything
checking Device Info shows
"Bluetooth adapter disabled"
"Bluettooth low energy supported: No"
"Native HID supported: No"
This Nexus 7 is the only bluetooth device I have. Is there anyway to access the ruuvi tag?
The first-generation Nexus 7 is a mini tablet computer co-developed by Google and Asus that runs the Android operating system. It is the first tablet in the Google Nexus series of Android consumer devices marketed by Google and built by an original equipment manufacturer partner. The Nexus 7 features a 7.0-inch (180 mm) display, an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core chip, 1 GB of memory, Wi-Fi and near field communication connectivity, and 8, 16 or 32 GB of storage. The tablet was the first device to ship ...
Sorry, no. Seems that the device is not compatible with Bluetooth Low Energy (4+) beacons.
The Nexus 7 (2012) has bluetooth. The wikipedia description clearly overlooks the fact that I have a nice option in the settings to turn it off/on as needed. Even show the little bluetooth logo in the top icon/notification bar. It was there with the original OS and each update through to 5.1.
It has, yes, but it’s Bluetooth 3.0 not 4 which is totally different. I didn’t check this further but it’s what Wikipedia says.
There is Bluetooth classic and then there is the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). You need to check to see if your Nexus 7 supports BLE 4.2.
It doesn’t. Only the newer 2013 version of Nexus 7 supports BLE (aka Bluetooth Smart).
